    Just spotted this on the Macworld UK website.

    Apple are extending the free songs deal with Coke to the big Coke sign at Piccadilly Circus - text the word on the screen to a number and you'll get at least one free song apparently...and possibly up to 1000

    And if you're wandering around with your iPod on, you might get a 5-song card and a free coke...

    I just saw this on the RSS feed- I knew someone would have beaten me to it :)

    Has anyone seen these codes yet?

    How much do you have to pay for the text message though?

    And how often afterwards will Coke harrass you with Txt ads :(

    I've sent both the Rock code and the Funk code that someone (think it was you!) posted and haven't had a reply off either! :confused:

    I did send them late though 10:30pm ish, maybe they changed? :confused:

    I sent my text off with the funk code about 9.30pm and won three songs. My reply came about a minute after. According to the rules it just costs your standard text message rate i.e. about 10p or whatever you normally pay. I have not had any marketing stuff sent by Coke but I suppose you never know later on - can't be any worse than mobile phone companies trying to get you to upgrade and bombarding you with texts.

    Yes, someone PLEASE post today's code. I posted the codes for Wednesday and Thursday, but I'm working too late to go to the West End tonight.

    And what is the URL for this webcam?

    Bah! Just one free(ish) song. I did it twice as well, which was stupid of me.

    Thanks for the word though :)

    Cheers! Just got 5 songs! :D And one more entry since I've used it twice now!

    Incidentally, if Coke do start bombarding with texts, there will have to be an opt-out to text STOP or the like back since as they haven't asked us to opt in/out (unless they show terms and conditions on the screen), it would be against the data protection act not to allow us to opt out later.
